Notes & Reviews:

On the occasion of the centenary of the birth of the conductor Karel Ancerl the "final word" remains to be said within the Ancerl Gold Edition. The four CDs sum up the work of Ancerl's contemporaries, with the exception of Britten's "The Young Person's Guide to the Orchestra", that of Czech composers. The set bears unprecedented witness to the 1950s and 1960s, the period when the Communist powers decided on taste and composition trends, and when the criterion for acceptance or rejection of a work was its "mass appeal" and the degree of consonance with the "Socialist Realism" style. The excellent Czech Philharmonic Orchestra with its internationally sought-after conductor is here involuntarily in the services of propagandist kitsch.
